Home Radio Road

Which tuner to get and getting the most from it. Thank God, for the radio!

Update: Long story..short...

I got the ic regulator for the power supply on my AH673, but unfortunately the problem was still there. I finally determined that the power supply board had gone through too many cap upgrades with too many damaged traces,etc. so I searched for another AH673 and was fortunate to find a fair cosmestic but working AH6731(black). I got a good deal on it so I just got it in and took the power supply board out and put it into my upgraded 673. Voila! I now have sound. I just replaced all the old caps and diodes in it and it is making beautiful music once again.

On another note, I just completed the refurbishing of my Sansui TU-X1 and although there are many Black gate and Silmic II caps that need a couple of weeks to fully break in, I can tell the sound will be spectacular. I am anticipating this being my new reference tuner, although I could very happily live with the Philips AH673 as my reference. This labor of love has been very fruitful.
